Rangers are set to terminate the loan of the young winger Josh McPake at Dundee, according to Football Insider.
The 18-year-old has returned to The Hummel Training Centre after picking up an ankle injury while playing for the Dee and has only made three starts for the club since his arrival from Ibrox in the summer.
Dundee boss James McPake told the Courier that the youngster would return to Rangers to undergo treatment and anxiously awaits any further development of his progress amid reports that he could head back to Ibrox.
On McPake’s contract, there is a recall option that could be activated at any time, making the 18-year-old’s departure from Dens Park possible, as per the Courier.
Football Insider revealed that he would not be returning to Dundee as Rangers will keep a close eye on him for the rest of the month.
McPake has not featured for the Dee since November during his side’s 2-0 defeat against hated neighbours Dundee United and has scored two goals and provided one assist in ten appearances in all competitions, racking up just 434 minutes on the pitch, according to Transfermarkt.
The whole experience will be a learning curve for McPake’s career, while his parent club might not be too happy with the number of minutes that he’s playing, with both teams now having to wait on the extent of the young man’s injury.
January will be a key period for McPake. If he does not return to Dundee then the question will remain whether he stays in the blue half of Glasgow or ventures off on another loan spell until the end of the season.
